I haven't been weighing myself lately because I knew I was bloated and I haven't been able to exercise due to being sick. I have also been reaching for more than my share of comfort food... So I wasn't feeling my best and didn't really want to worry about what the scale said when I was feeling crappy enough. Yesterday was the 1st of November and I thought I might have a look at the scales and see how I am tracking (I skipped my October weigh in because I was in Bali).
November 1st Weigh In: 80.3 kilos (176.5 lbs)
Weight Lost In Sept/Oct: 5.2 kilos (11.5 lbs)
Total Weight Lost: 49.4 kilos (108.5 lbs)
The most exciting part? I am just a whisker away from being in the 70's and also having lost a total of 50 kilos. Until recently I had never even weighed in the 80's, so being in the 70's would be completely surreal to me. Prior to having a lap band my goal was always just to get under 100 kilos and now here I am less than a kilo away from the 70's. I mean I have friends I would call 'thin' who weigh in the 70's (granted they are taller than me).
I am not actively dieting at the moment or obsessing about numbers on the scale, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't be freaking awesome to get into the 70's. I think there is a possibility I could cry when I do actually see a number starting with a 7 on the scales.
